I had 3 of the allied races unlocked before they were even available, and the last was easy to complete, even though I likely will not be playing one. What isn't shown are some of the new class changes coming, as well as a new level 120 level-cap. Looks like golden cities of Zandalar and dark forests of Kul Tiras don't deserve that :C Whatever. Guess I'll do that now though. Amazon purchases came with a digital beta code.
Additional Allied Races will be available in the future. Written by Christie Golden and Robert Brooks. Not sure if that's a change for better or worse. To unlock Allied Races quest lines, players must have a level-110 character and have met specific questing and reputation requirements on the factions each Allied Race is aligned with. They finally listened and gave us something of value instead of just an extra key. Comment by Reidorr on 2018-04-05T09:58:43-05:00 This is rather disappointing, as a Blizzard Collector's Edition collector. This time, though, Alliance and Horde each have their own mount.
Soundtrack is now only digital? Place it somewhere prominent, with your chosen faction proudly facing out into the world for all to see. The illustrated hardcover novellas sound neat, but that's not enough to get me on board, especially since they'll be available digitally later. Comment by Sok4R on 2018-03-09T14:23:24-06:00 I bought the Pre-Order Box for Warlords of Draenor because I have boxes for all Wow Addons and want to continue that, but that at least had a poster in it so a little bonus you can't get digital, but this one apparently has nothing except for the code. I thought you'd get some cashback as Battle. The standard edition is literally just what you can get in the game now, digitally, but with a box, with nothing else really in it. Was really looking forward to an artbook, as I have no interest in reading the novella.
This limited edition hardback version collects two new World of Warcraft novellas depicting the Burning of Teldrassil from the point of view of the Alliance Elegy, by Christie Golden and the Horde A Good War, by Robert Brooks. We already know that Zandalari Trolls and Dark Iron Dwarves will be unlockable during the Battle for Azeroth storyline, and if the system proves popular — very likely — then more are possible. For people who either can't or don't want to use a credit card on the internet, or for an alternative way to gift the expansion to someone, those are the sorts of people this type of stuff is targeted towards. The only people who benefit from this system are those who actively keep up two accounts. Comment by Nulgar on 2018-04-05T08:18:57-05:00 Indeed, 100 bucks for a box without an artbook seems a bit steep. I cannot find it at amazon, gamestop, etc. If it is, I have no idea why Blizzard decided that it has to look like that.
Comment by Ellore on 2018-04-05T08:32:48-05:00 I get that the artbook is being replaced by the novella, but about the rest. I'd rather have the allied races today than an artbook in eight months. It's likely it's just meant to be a way to buy the expansion without having to do so online. Comment by Ephyste on 2018-04-05T09:24:24-05:00 Call me old-school, but I always liked having a physical copy of the soundtrack. Today, Blizzard put pre-orders live for the expansion. Battle for Azeroth Collector's Edition In addition to the content from the , the Collector's Edition of Battle for Azeroth 99. This way you can at least buy services or game time.
The World of Warcraft's Battle for Azeroth expansion release date is August 14, meaning there's still time to preorder and gain access to quests to unlock some of WoW's new playable races. This leaves an open question as to what the plan will be once the Legion endgame is no longer relevant. I've always loved the art books and mouse pads. Comment by Soeroah on 2018-03-09T09:52:35-06:00 See, this is. Maybe now they'll do a battle. Comment by kurio1990 on 2018-04-05T09:13:28-05:00 But, my mousepad.
What I do know is I'm sick of being forced to double dip if I want both the physical collectibles and the early access rewards. Comment by Ariamodasu on 2018-04-05T08:09:38-05:00 And where pray tell has the artbook gone? I prefer to have physical media in hand when possible. Have they done that in the past? Even if they have a dozen exclusive illustrations, it's not at all the same. And, not including a dedicated art book. Comment by kimmuryiel on 2018-03-09T19:34:37-06:00 now we just need news of the collector's box.
Comment by Bulo on 2018-03-09T09:55:44-06:00 hi there you have mistake in this. Players upgrading from World of Warcraft Starter Edition must wait for trial restrictions to be removed up to 72 hours before using character boost. The four Allied Races are Nightborne plus Highmountain Tauren for the Horde, and Void Elves plus Lightforged Draenei for the Alliance. Fortunately postman comes by quite early. Naturally, it starts with pets and mounts. .
Blizzard is also being mum about this, merely saying that the information will be posted later. I hate stickers, and these seem to be part of the box's art. Alliance players can add the shadow-touched Void elves and valiant Lightforged to their ranks, while Horde players can bring the ancient Nightborne and noble Highmountaintauren into their fold. The coin adds value as you can not get it anywhere else at least you better not be able too and will later help me decide if I go alliance or horde in future expansions :P This is the first time I'm actually considering just getting the digital deluxe version instead of the physical version. Probably because the only thing datamined besides the achievements are the icons. Comment by Mikula on 2018-04-05T09:03:29-05:00 This is rather disappointing, as a Blizzard Collector's Edition collector. The novella is intriguing, but I always did like having the dedicated art book.
